Ruth Lambert Trio at Quadrata Café (Where?)

If you're making your first visit to the Quadrata Café allow yourself plenty time. It doesn't have a neon sign, or any other form of identification. The passers by that I quizzed had never heard of it and I'd begun to question its mere existence. However, to cut short a boring tale of worn out shoes and negative shaking of heads, let me just say that I eventually found it midst a complex of what appeared to be upmarket offices.
The reason for my quest was to experience one of their occasional lunchtime sessions of chamber type music both classical and jazz.
Today's recital featured Ruth Lambert, once more in trio format, this time with Mark Williams on guitar and Mick Shoulder on bass.
Although the acoustics were somewhat strange, our girl gave a faultless performance of the tried and tested with her 'boys' providing the comfort zone for an enjoyable vignette.
